The process of ceramic welding was developed in the late 1960s by a Belgianglass manufacturing company. The technology was introduced to the United States in 1979 as an effective method of carrying out a wide range of repairs during furnace operation.
When damage is identified early enough Fuse Tech can carry out ceramic welding to eliminate the need for an extensive conventional repair (exchange of damaged refractories).
The key benefit of ceramic welding is that it can be performed during normal furnace operation. The fur nace doesn’t need to be shut-off or cooled down. The final result is no or only minimum loss of production.
The ceramic welding is an attractive solution for prolongation of the furnace life time considering the some times very high cost for only a partial reconstruction.
Fuse Tech offers two types of ceramic welding: repair of damage to refractory material inside the furnace (hot face welding) and outside the furnace (cold face welding). Read more…
